ADUSA Supply Chain Services is a supply chain company of Ahold Delhaize USA, providing services to one of the largest grocery retail supply chains in the nation. ADUSA Supply Chain Services includes functions that support the end-to-end supply chain operations, such as human resources, finance, business process management, research & development, innovation, sales, and operations planning, data and analytics, vertical integration and

e-commerce operations and logistics. ADUSA Supply Chain Services fosters a culture that inspires and empowers our associates to always deliver exceptional service and value.

To learn more about our company and the other supply chain companies of Ahold Delhaize USA, visit www.adusasupplychain.com. The Manager Facility Design & Realization is part of the Central Fulfillment Channel team, and their role is to be the subject matter expert on realizing optimal facility layout and design, and bringing new facility proposals all the way from inception to investment proposal.

This role will have a background and experience in industrial engineering, with experience and expertise on optimal design and layout for fulfillment facilities. This includes being familiar with PDL's portfolio of different fulfillment models (e.g. warerooms, dark stores, micro fulfillment centers), understanding best practices out of each of those models, and being able to advise business stakeholders at ADUSA's brands on most optimal layout.

Designs will need to lead to facilities than can pass investment hurdles (positive Net Present Value and Return on Capital meeting financial requirements), which means they need to be optimized to achieve the highest possible productivity, balanced with maximum sales capacity and utilization of space, allowing for the optimal performance from a P&L perspective.

This includes being able to provide direction on proposed real estate assets to understand whether they are viable and realistic as a potential fulfillment location, as well as functioning as the primary point of contact for a multitude of stakeholders (brand operators, leadership, RBS store development/construction, Workplace Safety, Food Safety, etc.) to work through the detailed architectural & engineering phase, addressing any modifications needing to be made and determine the best solution for those modifications, etc.

Once design is finalized, this role will also help shepherd the proposed facility through the realization process, with the goal of acquiring an approved investment proposal. To that end, they will work with counterparts within Finance and Investment Planning, to be their single point of contact in collecting inputs required to build an investment proposal. This includes determining the attainable productivity through activity-based cost modeling, which this function would own, but also gathering inputs from other sources, e.g. expected sales volume from the Network Strategy team, and expected hiring, training and learning curves from the brand operations team.
